Restorative Dentistry

Crown ParramattaIf you recently had your tooth fractured, maybe had that long-standing, deep cavity finally removed, or a root canal treatment, then you probably would need to have a dental crown procedure done after.

Dental Crowns are basically caps or helmets placed over the remaining tooth structure to help preserve and save the tooth, eliminating the need for tooth extraction.

As conscious dentists, saving the natural tooth is always the priority so dental crowns Parramatta are made to protect whatever is left of the tooth.

This receives the forces applied onto the tooth during dental functions such as chewing and biting so the tooth does not fracture.

There are several materials nowadays for dental crown Parramatta and each has its own suitability depending on several factors. Types of tooth crowns include Porcelain Fused to Metal, Emax, Zirconia, and Gold Alloy Crowns.

To give you an idea, here are the factors that you and your dentist Sydney should consider as you choose the tooth crown for you.

Location of the Tooth in the Mouth

Each tooth has a different function depending on when it is located in the mouth. Front teeth are made to be the most aesthetically pleasing as they are seen when you smile.

It is also made for biting food. Meanwhile, back teeth like molars are for chewing food so they need to be the strongest teeth.

By this logic, ceramic crowns are most suitable for front teeth and the stronger and more durable gold and porcelain fused to metal crowns are the best choices for molars.

Amount of Tooth Reduction

Certain types of crowns require more tooth shaving to allow the tooth to receive the bulk of the material such as the porcelain fused to metal crowns.

However, if you want to preserve more of the tooth structure especially if there is no substantial damage to it, opt for Zirconia crowns as this material can be made thinly, so no excessive tooth structure will have to be shaved off.

Patient’s Oral Hygiene

Dental crown Parramatta can be difficult to maintain especially because the tooth inside of the crown can decay if proper oral hygiene is not committed to. Therefore, to ensure the longevity of whatever dental crown you choose, you must pay regular visits to your Parramatta dentist so they can check the condition of the crown.

Otherwise, consider an adjustment to better oral hygiene practices first before committing to dental crowns.
